Daisy is my fraternal Grandmother. Daisy & Henry Wells had 10 children. Three lived to adulthood & gave them 11 grandchildren, & in turn they gave them 20 great-grandchildren, & 21 great-great-grandchildren. Daisy was married 3 times, first to Henry Wells, second to Joe Weeks & third to Floyd Dietz. We fondly called her Big Grandma because she was taller then our maternal grandmother. She was a very good Quilter. About 1992 I interviewed Daisy about her children. She was very emotional, but did not hesitate to tell me the gender, year of birth & place of birth of four of her children. Up to that time no one knew any details, just that she had lost four or five babies. One child was named so they knew of her existence. The other four were never named or spoken of until Grandma told me herself. I have no doubts about them. You had to be present at the interview to see her, & realize how hard it was for her to remember.
